i am 4 weeks pregnant. i have a doctor appointment with 3 weeks. i am just wondering how to remove vaginal hair. i have lot of black and strong hair in the outer side of vagina. it looks ugly. how to remove that before doctor's appointment?
Not sure if it is safe during pregnancy, but I highly recommend laser hair removal if you can afford it. It hurts while they're doing it, but the results are wonderful. You can have as much or as little off as you like - anywhere. As for right now, I'd just use a razor the morning of your appt.
Now, i always thought that but apparently I live in conservative central,lol! Dh would tease me about the fact that I would no longer shave completely while pg, but rather keep things trimmed. Well, I said to heck with it and when I went in for my IUD removal I was shaved...much to my surprise and embrassment my OB gave me a really weird look! I was mortified!!!
So needless to say this time around, I am back to just keeping things trimmed, but not shaved. I would have to agree, far more women go "all natural" or at leats have for the last umpteen years than who have shaved. I wouldn't stress about it too much. If you feel you need to clean things up a bit invest in a good razor like a Venus, good shaving cream/gel, some noxema mini razors for the more delicate areas, and some bikini zone to help fight irritation.
As long as I can remember I have been "weird" about keeping my vaginal hair shaved. I like it to be nice and neat. Well when I was pregnant with my DS I think I kept it up for about 5 or 6 months. I was also scolded by my doctors for shaving there. They all told me that it's not healthy (because of the rick of infection from nics and such). But I continued until it got difficult to work around my big belly. That's when I decided that it wasn't worth it. I don't recommend starting now. Your doctors REALLY don't care. And also, when you are unable to keep it up the new hair growth will itch. That will be the last thing you will want to deal with when you are dealing with all of the other pregnancy issues. GL!!! I hope you have a wonderful pregnancy!!!!
what i do is shave like regular and then use a mirror lie a standing mirrir that you like put on the bacck of your door...prop up against the wall lay on my back with a towel underneath of me and then shave..of cousre you still have to be careful cause its much better cause you can see everythiing you are doing. now the fact tht you are pregnant at that 4 months might not be a good idea but for future refereces..it works and its much easy and all the icky hair is gone lol...but for your doctorss appointment he seen just about everything..beleive me youll be fine.
DO NOT USE STUFF WITH PERFUMES NEAR YOUR FLOWER! BADDDD! And I have been shaving with an electric shaver for years and never had an itch problem. I don't feel child-like at all. I feel very clean and accessable for whatever may come up ;) AWESOME!
I use a home IPL unit. It works fantastic on my bikini area! NO stubble and i have not had any regrowth in 5 months! i first heard about IPL at the clinic when i went to have my legs done with laser, than i researched online and had it done at the clinic. It was great, no pain, and the hair falls out almost instantly. So i again went online and found http://vissbeauty.com and purchased their home IPL unit. I have saved hundreds, and have used it all over my body. I love it! very happy, and very happy to share! ( even with my friends who are constantly asking to borrow it!)
DO NOT us any kind of depilatory that doesn't specifically say "for women's vaginal area." I did and suffered a pretty bad chemical burn that took me more than two weeks to get over with medication prescribed by my dr. Infact while you're pregnant don't use any kind of depilatory at all. And, I agree with the others, it is almost impossible to keep it up while you're pregnant. I wish I had never started shaving down there and I'm not pregnant. And it's true, OB/GYNs have seen it all and they really don't care.
